Five Nights at Freddy’s Review: Simple But Effective

 
 
 
 
 

There’s something just plain creepy about animatronic characters. Five Nights at Freddy’s, the surprise hit indie horror game, takes full advantage of that. It’s a simple game, but it can also be effective. The premise, if you haven’t heard, is this: You are the midnight watchman at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a children’s pizza party restaurant…(Read the full article)

Banner Saga Review: This RPG is a Story-Driven Success

 
 
 
 
 

One of the more frustrating articles I’ve read in recent months was this one discussing the issues Apple and developer Stoic had over pricing for The Banner Saga, the turn-based RPG that hit iTunes recently. It was frustrating because the Banner Saga is such a good game, a real fine example of its genre, and…(Read the full article)

80 Days Review: 5-Stars! A Big Step Forward in iOS Interactive Fiction

 
 
 
 
 

If you’re not one for reading books or getting sucked into a great fictional story, then don’t read the App Store description of developer inkle’s 80 Days too closely. If you did take a look at the praise being heaped on this game, chances are you’d come to know it’s based on an old novel written by Jules Verne and published way back in 1873. But see, fan of literature or not, it would be such a shame if you let that fact stop you from experiencing what will undoubtedly go down as a classic in iOS interactive fiction.(Read More)

Goat Simulator Review: The Dumbest Game You Won’t Regret Playing

 
 
 
 
 

So, I have been tasked with writing a  review of Goat Simulator. I will endeavor to do my best, but be warned: this is not a typical game review. Which is fitting, since this isn’t a typical game. Goat Simulator is an unapologetically pointless game that one can only appreciate by…(Read More)

Goblin Sword Review: Retro Platforming Goodness

 
 
 
 
 

Retro gaming is big in the App Store. So many 8-bit and 16-bit retro games are out there that it’s not really a special idea anymore. But when a game isn’t just retro but nostalgic, it’s a real treat. Goblin Sword is such a game, an unrepentant 16-bit retro platformer that delivers a great experience.

Valiant Hearts (iOS) Review: A Puzzle Adventure Game With History and Heart

 
 
 
 
 

Big games are … well, big. But sometimes, it’s the small studios who take chances on unlikely ideas and make awesome games with them. One such game is Valiant Hearts: The Great War, recently released to iOS. This blend of story, style, and substance is worth playing. Go into Valiant Hearts with the intent of…(Read the full article)

Bioshock [iOS] Review: A Capable Port of a Great Game

 
 
 
 
 

Last year, 2K/2K China delivered iOS gamers the excellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown port. They’re back this year with another big console port, this time the sci-fi FPS thriller Bioshock. Like their previous effort, Bioshock is generally a strong and impressive port; unlike XCOM, however, Bioshock’s port is not without hiccups.

Pac Man Friends Review: Clunky Controls and IAPs at Premium Price

 
 
 
 
 

Pac Man has gotten a lot of mileage out of its nearly 35 year old gimmick of a round, mouthy circle concusming power pellets and being chased by colorful ghosts. This past week, Bandai Namco squeezed a little more mileage out of it with Pac Man Friends, a star-chasing puzzle game that amuses, though it…(Read the full article)

Blood Bowl Review: This One’s for the Fans

 
 
 
 
 

Blood Bowl is a tabletop minatures game that combines the gritty fantasy of Warhammer with the gritty violence of American football. It’s a fun game, and it has all the potential to be a fun app on the iPad. And it is … sort of. Blood Bowl by Focus Home Interactive is a faithful recreation…(Read the full article)

A Dark Room Review: Satisfaction Awaits those Who Get Drawn in by this Excellent Text Adventure

 
 
 
 
 

“Awake. Head throbbing. Vision blurry. Come light the fire.” That’s the bleak message that awaits you upon first launch of A Dark Room, and if you’re as skeptical as I was about an iOS text-adventure game, you’ll just have to believe that the hours you’re about to pour into this game will pay off on…(Read the full article)
